I'm finally getting these posted (sorry about the delay ). I'm not sure if anyone read it or not - it was at the bottom of the December thread - but the hands-down champion amongst us for 2008 was ....

maninmidohio!

He kept a pretty solid lead througout the year and played well without fail, week after week. So he deserves many "congratulations!" for a fine and consistent performance. Well done, sir !

I went through, too, and gathered the monthly winners for the year ... and you'll note that the top scorers there were widely distributed. So, let it be said: in the overall picture, there isn't a "loser" amongst us .

January ... cinnamOn
February ... brandz_mygirl & Gatsby722 [tie]
March ... nakarinna
April ... maninmidohio
May ... denni19
June ... maninmidohio
July ... Gatsby722
August ... szabs
September ... szabs
October ... brandz_mygirl
November ... maninmidohio
December ... Mugaboo

And (in case you didn't see them) the final year-end tallies looked like this:

1. maninmidohio (95 points) ~ the reigning *King of Trivia!*
2. szabs (75 points)
3. brandz_mygirl (69 points)
4. nakarinna (67 points)
5. Mugaboo (65 points)
6. Gatsby722 (64 points)
7. denni19 (59 points)
8. zorba_scank (31 points)
9. deputygary (21 points)
10. cinnamOn (18 points)
11. srini701 (16 points)
12. deepakmr (14 points)
13. ecnalubma
.....Lizard_Wizard (both 6 points)
15. gsmoke827 (4 points)
16. gemini19 (3 points)
17. JaneMarple
.....Snowman (both 2 points)
19. ainenei
.....bethfay
.....flopsymopsy
.....glendathecat
.....Jafato
.....LeoDaVinci
.....missbecky2007
.....Santana2002 (all 1 point)

'Twas a very good year, indeed !

Congratulations Maninmidohio! Fantastic accomplishment!

I wonder...is it something you eat or is it all just about being in mid-Ohio ?

also...

Thank you Gatsby for all the hard work you've put in tallying all these, month after month. I guess we should award you with some extra points in January.
Does everybody agree?

Totally! Thank you to Gats for doing all the hard work. This is in addition to his hosting, playing (not just these rounds), moderating, advising (I know I've 'bugged' him at least twice in recent memory) plus dealing with real-life demands.

And a wonderful result for Maninmidohio! Well done.

Hello bikoz

These points are awarded for playing the monthly "Trivia Rounds" here in this Forum.

You can read about how they work in HERE - this is the game for February 2009.
